This series never fails to have me inhaling every word written and just indulging in the brilliance that is Cherise Sinclair. Every instalment provides raw emotion; romance, passion and great characters. I can’t really fault any story in this series and highly recommend it. I’ve enjoyed them all, some more than others sure, but there’s no question that this is one of the best BDSM series out there. As always, in my opinion, this series should be read in order as it centres round the BDSM club – Shadowlands and you form a relationship with all the characters along the way.
I loved Show Me, as not only did we get Master Jake and Rainie’s story we also had Gabi and Sally’s joint bachelorette party and wedding which was so bloody sexy and funny! Catching up with the whole gang was brilliant, I love them all and I never fail to immerse myself fully in their world every time I pick a new story up. It always feels like I’m coming home to spend time with friends when I pick up a new book in this series.
‘He’d saved her….He made her feel special.’
Master Jake was LUSH; every Dom in Shadowlands has that attractive sexy protective nature, the addictive passionate raw sexuality. Well, Jake also had a romantic streak with a hint of vulnerability and a nurturing side. Jake is perfection in a complete package, oh and add to that, a bit of a filthy mouth.
And Rainie, well what can I say? She felt so real and this is something that’s a given in most of Cherise Sinclair’s stories. The heroines are people you ‘know’; their inner struggles completely believable. It makes reading their journeys that much more heart-warming and you can’t help but empathise, feel and rejoice with them in their journey to find their perfect Master.
‘Everyone had let her down. In a way he’d been part of her trauma. That ugly revelation still grated through his system.’
Rainie had such insecurities and suffered the after effects of a traumatic childhood. Yet her loyalty and strength was quite something. She showed that she’s so much more than the sassy and naughty trainee sub at Shadowlands.
“God,” she moaned.
“I usually suggest Sir or Master, but I suppose God is adequately respectful.”
Show Me is a novella and in a way I felt that a little bit. Not for character development or storyline though. I just wish we’d had more background on Jake and Rainie as well as more ‘afters’. We got some but I’d have loved more.
And my oh my….Master Marcus…my favourite Shadowlands Dom is back and I loved every scene he was in, being back with my man…..swooning and reminiscing. Made me want to re-read his story! Now, I’m not sure whose story’s next but I’m hoping its Mistress Anne’s!!! Bring it on….
